Information and advice on rules pertaining to drilling for borewells in overexploited land

Sir,

I have purchased an agricultural land of 8 acres in the Anantapur district in Jagarajpalli Panchayat in the year 2012. I got to know that the land falls under over exploited zone and permission for borewell for the sake of cultivation is not permissible.

Unfortunately there are no existing bores in the land. The only existing well in the land is always dry because the neighbourhood farmers have drilled their bores very close to the well. When I ask if all of the neighbourhood farmers have got permission to drill,they laugh at me in response. They have bores, which could be illegal.

However, I want to follow the rules and get permission for cultivating 8 acres. It looks as though the rules are only hurdles for those who sincerely wish to follow and for those who do not want to follow, rules are merely meaningless statements on papers.

What is the true achievement of policy of "over exploited" zone? What is the alternative solution to my problem? Will I ever be able to bring water on my 8 acres? Can you suggest some exemption officially for people like me who are trying to take your rules seriously?

Thank you
